Hypnotherapy for weight loss

Losing weight

When it comes to losing weight, there is a very simple equation that people should bear in mind. If you burn up and use up more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. This is at the heart of every single fad diet and weight loss programme you will hope to find.

There is simplicity to the concept of weight loss but of course, there are many reasons why people struggle to lose weight. Basically, if you eat the right foods (or even lesser amounts of the wrong foods) and increase the amount of exercise or physical activity you undertake, you will lose weight, in theory. This isn’t always simple and there are reasons why some people struggle to find the right diet or exercise plan that is right for them. Even when people know that it is important for them to start taking affirmative action with respect to their weight, they can struggle.

Other Influences

For many people, the issue that stops them from losing weight can often be psychological. Some people have a mental block when it comes to working out or losing weight, these are issues that will always prevent people from making positive changes in their life.  These mental blocks can be caused by many things,  lives can be hectic and stressful, which doesn’t help. After a long day it can be hard  to stick to personal goals.

The thought of putting on weight, constantly checking the scales  or even making self critical judgments in front of the mirror can create unnecessary anxiety. This can add to the problem and can sometimes make it harder to have the motivation and capabilities to make a positive change.

Brain Chemicals

Our brains release certain chemicals when we are happy. This allows us to cope better with day to day life, be more rational and make better choices. These chemicals help keep us focused, motivated and most of all help give the ability to stay in control. When these other influences occur our chemical response changes and the brain  will look to replace them based on our previous patterns of experiences.

Food among other things often replaces these chemicals which is where comfort eating can come from. This in itself can make things worse. The food produces those happy chemicals for a period of time but then those stressful lives, self doubt, guilt and looking in that mirror starts the whole process off again.

Are You Ready To Change?

If it took you 2 hrs to walk home from work every day and then someone showed you a route that saved you an hour off your journey, would you still walk the long way home?

When we learn a better way of doing something it becomes a part of our subconscious and we adopt the more logical thought process.

What hypnotherapy could do for you

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps deal with these issues in a positive way.  Rather than focusing on the problem the client is encouraged to think of the solution.

Working with a brain based psychological approach. The client can be taught to identify the patterns of behaviour that make them feel  the need to eat, when they clearly know that they shouldn’t. The brain can be trained in a way that is positive so that these patterns or situations that used to be irritating, stressful or self critical can be dealt with in a way that is much more logical. This then helps creates the right chemicals. Creating the right chemicals will improve the clients positivity, self worth and also encourage motivation to achieve the goals which before seemed hard to reach.

How we think determines how we feel. Think positive and positive things happen.
